Dylan And Northam Singing ‘Blowing In The Wind’


-
Bob’s 1963 song resonated in the music world and now in the renewable-sustainable world.
-
Roanoke Times, 9-22-2018, Pg Va 3: Northam: State poised to lead in wind power.
-
The premise: build a wind turbine farm 27-miles off-shore and generate free electricity for 20-years.
-
Suppose that electricity from wind turbines is more expensive than other available sources; especially with 27-miles of ocean-bottom high-voltage transmission.  Dragging anchors not withstanding.  Should customers be required to pay the premium costs?
LTE to RT: Wind turbine project seems overpriced
-
Suppose that wind turbine energy is not only overpriced but also requires massive energy to develop, manufacture and implement.  Should customers be required to support energy-negative projects?
-
-
-
-
Suppose wind turbines, even on land, are subject to major damage and long-term outages due to bad weather events.  Should customers be subject to brown-outs and black-outs for supporting wind turbines?  Who’s paying for the 100% backup systems?
-

-
Suppose the Virginia 27-mile off-shore turbines are subject to major adverse wind events with recent ocean waves up to 80-feet high; And at other times wind so light the turbines don’t spin.  Who and what is supplying the 100% back-up that customers require and who’s paying for major repairs and replacements?
-
Suppose the wind turbine developers can’t get potential customers to commit to long-term contracts required to get the project funded?  As is the case with the Botetourt Wind Farm.  Should taxpayers fund and subsidize these unreliable projects?

-
Suppose the ‘sensitive’ public are unhappy with killing eagles, birds and bats and demand the turbines shut-down when birds are flying through?  More customer brown-outs or 100% backup from somewhere?
Crippled Wind Farm Coming To Botetourt County
-
A case study on off-shore wind turbine farms is the hypocrisy of the Kennedy Clan’s Jihad against the Wind Power farms off-shore from the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis.
At Nantucket Sound, Ma.in 2003 The environmental elitists, the Kennedy Clan, raised every issue possible to stop off-shore wind turbines including getting Walter Kronkite to make TV ads for them. However, Walter changed his position from "no" to "show-me" and then had the ads removed from the air.
-
Is it valid or proper for Robert Kennedy Jr to call skeptics like myself “treasonous” for ‘critical thinking’ and commentary?
Perhaps there are energy realities that need to be considered!
Perhaps taxpayers and ratepayers are not being well informed!
Perhaps projects are being done based on ideology and not sound engineering and economics!
Perhaps we need more Skeptics asking good questions!
